Service Alert: Lines 17 and 70 return to regular route northbound on SE 17th as of 9/1

The northbound SE 17th Avenue overpass above Powell Boulevard in Portland reopens tonight by 6 p.m., rather than on Sunday morning, Sept. 1.

The opening of the overpass allows both TriMet bus lines 17-Holgate/Broadway and 70-12th/NE 33rd Ave to return to regular route northbound on SE 17th. This change occurs Sunday, Sept. 1, when TriMet’s fall service changes are implemented.

The overpass was closed in one direction for 14 months while light rail project crews removed the old overpass to construct a new, adjacent crossing for light rail trains.

Thank you to the Brooklyn neighborhood for your patience during project construction!
